Night Bloom

I’ve told you before about The Face Shop’s PK102, my preferred pale polish I use for my fingernails. This, on the other hand is Bobbie’s Night Bloom, the deep shade I found perfect for my nails.

From the bottle it looks like a deeper maroon, but when it hits the light it looks purplish. Upon first swipe it will look like crushed duhat, with another swipe, cranberries and with another, like the topping of blueberry cheesecake. And now I’m craving for blueberry cheesecake.

It’s my absolute favorite. I love it not just because it heavily contrasts the color of my skin, but also because I feel super tough when I wear it. And it complements anything I wear.

The Grass is Green

Today, I turn another year older. I just want to thank God for giving me life. I want to thank Him for all the blessings he endowed me: my family, friends, all my loved ones, even our pets at home. Plus the fact that He never lets me go hungry any day of the week, and that He gives me the strength to go to work every day in order for me to have the things I need and want.

 Thrifted tank top and denim blouse, a necklace from Papemelroti, a hand-me-down skirt from my aunt, blue Ferretti wedges

And here are just some of the people I <3!

Four heads are better than one!

Gone Retro

One day, out of sheer boredom, Mia and I had a photo shoot. Truth is, I wanted to play with the flash of my Diana Mini and she wanted to road test her new awesome tripod. And to make it more fun, Mia told me that we're going retro. How fun indeed! 

With a little bit (or plenty, doesn't really matter which) of tweaking, here are the results!

You couldn't really see it here, but I was wearing high-waist shorts and a pink checkered button-up blouse. The sunglasses were a gift. You'll see more of the shorts in the following post.

blue wedges - Ferretti

I wanna thank Mia again for cooking up this crazy shoot. I really enjoyed doing this with her and I'm sure we'll be doing it again. Do visit her blogs, All About Filters and The Modern Gabriela Silang. I'm sure you'll be inspired with her photos.

So I also wasn’t wearing my uniform last Friday. I had to attend a birthday party after work and to be practical, I decided to just go the smart casual route and skip the uniform. (Actually I wore my after-office clothes going to work and just changed into a more office-appropriate cardigan and high heels.)

 Very basic and work-friendly. I'm even wearing my I.D.!

Black cardigan and leggings - given by my mom

High heels - Payless ShoeSource

 Post-office hours, I changed into a:

Denim jacket - Market Market
Boots - given by my mom, from Japan

 And a party hat!

One is never too old to wear a party hat :D

Casual Friday

There isn't really a memo regarding Fridays being casual but these colleagues of mine still don't have uniforms (lucky them). I figured it would be a shame to not have their outfit photos taken since what they're wearing are oh-so charming and chic.

This is Leanne. Doesn't her outfit look so chic and fun? I am loving the big polka-dotted bow on her shoulder.

 This is the very pretty but very camera shy Kat. She always looks good in mala Mad Men office wear.

This silly girl is Stoi. I love the pop of color in this ensemble.

And this is Liz (who has a uniform but is not wearing hers, haha). The bohemian print on her blouse is just lovely.

And that's it! I am also not wearing my uniform, but I'll just tell you in another post. :P
